    We are headed to Dunedin. Our first touchdown in NZ is Auckland (oops on the misspelling in my first post) and then straight off again to Dunedin.

    Yeah! Having just done the trip, I'm wondering if you'd recommend splitting the trip into two. I'm coming from westcoast of Canada. I could fly to LAX or Hawaii (both about 5.5 hours) and stay over night or two nights, and then do the last leg (about 10 hours?). Just wondering if its worth the extra $500-700 dollars? I've had some say to take advantage of the flight over and do a stop over somewhere...some have suggested Fiji even. Thoughts?

    In the olden days, there were no LAX > AKL non-stops. We always had to stop in Fiji or Tahiti. IMHO, the non-stops are SO much easier - that is unless you want to spend at least three days in either place. LAX > AKL is 11-12 hours, depending on head winds, etc. If you break the trip, I'd do it in L.A.
